James Blake’s BBC Radio 1 legacy has been full of pranks. First he hoaxed a Burial interview, and now he’s aired a new Jamie xx track without anybody knowing.

The xx musician is set to release new single “Girl” along with already-revealed b-side “Sleep Sound” come 5 May. First, however, you can listen to “Girl” at the 11:08 mark below.

You can now listen to the official version below:
